Attaching a saved PDF to an Email
I'm working with a Go database and trying to email a pdf copy of a FM layout.
I'm able to save the FM layout as a pdf without any problem and I'm able to then email a message from Go to an external email but I'm not able to get the saved pdf to attach to the email.
I can see the saved pdf file in my files on the iPad and I can open it on my desktop, so I know that part worked.
I'm suspecting that I haven't set the file path correctly in the attachment options. Any advice appreciated.
Attachments from container field just show a jpeg of the field
We just bought the 360works E-mail plugin, and we're having some trouble getting attachments to work properly. The script which is sending e-mails is supposed to pull attachments from a container field (Emails::attach1). And it does...sort of.
The e-mail sends successfully, and contains an attachment. Except that the attachment is a .jpeg of what the container field LOOKS like, not a copy of the file it contains. I've tried this with .txt files, .zip files, .doc files, etc. Every time, I just get a picture of what the container field looks like.
When sending documents, I get an image of the first page of the document.
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Below is the line in the script that is doing the attachment. Platform is Windows 7 x64, Filemaker 10.3 Pro, E-mail plugin v. 1.96.
Set Variable $emailattach = EmailAttachFile( Emails::attach1 )
Thanks in advance.
